Do they still use cheesecake to push paperbacks? I don't think so - all the paperback covers I see today are 90 percent the author's name, a smaller title, and an itty bitty semblance of an illustration. Well, before I launch into a long and vitriolic speach about the glory days of the paperback, let's get on with the miniskirts. I present to you a small gallery of vintage paperbacks featuring the mini - most images are from Flickr, so click on the image to be directed to the image page and view full size. Enjoy!
This last one is actually a contemporary boook from Hard Case Crime books; their selection gives me hope these old crime novels are coming back into vogue.
